San Fernando Valley residents should be able to go to pro football games in the Valley, choose commercial flights out of Palmdale instead of LAX, ride light-rail trains from Warner Center to North Hollywood and send their kids to a Valley school district, according to City Council candidates who attended a forum Friday. Five of the six candidates vying for the southwest Valley's 3rd District council seat attended the broad-ranging forum sponsored by the Valley Industry and Commerce Assn.

Dennis Zine, a bundle of frenetic energy from start to finish, wasn't in a mingling mood. Locked in the city's tightest contest on election night--a race he led by a precarious 132 votes Wednesday--Zine was barely a guest at his own victory party as he paced the hallways of the Warner Center Marriott and ducked outside to gulp fresh air from a 17th-floor balcony. "Talk about stress," he muttered. "I just can't keep still."

But to call this a season of upheaval at City Hall would be a mistake. Maybe downright misleading. Because none of the council candidates is really a stranger to local politics.
